From the article: “With Senators Howard Cannon and Alan Bible in his party, Kennedy spoke not only about the threat of nuclear weapons -- the kind being tested above ground in the Nevada desert -- but also mentioned quote "science being developed in this state which will allow us to go beyond the moon....."

“When he returned to Las Vegas less than a year later, Kennedy was still jazzed about the ultimate potential of the NERVA project because tests proved it worked which meant travel to Mars or beyond was feasible. Two months after his Las Vegas trip, JFK went to Dallas.”
